This week we will continue learning about our abc. We will be working on recognizing the letters with their sound, letter formation, vocabulary of the letter, remember always emphasizing on the short vowel sounds. This week we will be studying about the letter Ii. The vocabulary for this letter is: igloo, iguana, itch, internet, in, ink, Indian, instruments, insects, invitations, injury, and imagination.
A child will be assigned each week with each letter. In this case, the children assigned should take at least five (5) items that they have at home that begin with this letter. Items should be at school on Monday and we will send them back on Friday. For this week we have Sebastian Isais Mendoza.
***Note: On Friday, the assigned student, will have to share for 17 friends eatable things such as ice cream, letter Ii cookies, etc. for children to taste. We do this to close our letter unit. Thank you for your support!!
The following link you will find a PowerPoint presentation with the vocabulary, in case you would like to review at home with your child.
Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
Mañana Iguana by Ann Whitford Paul is such a fun spin on The Little Red Hen. !Caramba! Iguana is planning a fiesta. Tortuga the tortoise, Conejo the rabbit, and Culebra the snake all want to come. But do they want to help Iguana deliver invitations or stuff the pinata or cook the food? No, no, and no! A lazy trio loses out in this clever update of the story of the Little Red Hen with a Mexican twist. A glossary of Spanish words is included.
Inch by Inch by Leo Lionni Meet a winning, winsome inchworm, proud of his ability to measure anything under the sun, from a robin's tail to a toucan's beak. When a hungry nightingale threatens to eat him for breakfast unless he can measure her song, the inchworm calls on his craft and skill to creatively solve the dilemma.
In math, will be working with numbers. We will work on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence. We will begin working this week with numbers 0-10. We will also be working with ABB and ABC patterns.
Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Itsy Bitsy Spider”
